‘Waver’s Rebellion’ OAK Rooker, ‘5 home runs’ → AL player of the week

Even a team that is on its way to the worst team record ever has excellent players. Oakland Athletics’ Brent Lucker (29) had the best week ever.

The Major League Secretariat announced on the 2nd (Korean time) that Rooker was selected as the American League Player of the Week. This is the first award in his personal career.

Rooker had a batting average of 0.417, 5 homers, 11 RBIs, 8 runs, 10 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.546 and an OPS of 1.629 in seven games over the past week.

In particular, in the game against the Los Angeles Angels on the 25th of last month, he led the team to victory with a multi-homer, and on the 29th against the Cincinnati Reds, he had a three-hit game.

As a result, the season performance also increased significantly. Rooker recorded a batting average of 0.353, 9 homers, 22 RBIs, an on-base percentage of 0.465 and an OPS of 1.245 in 22 games of the season until the 1st.

It is hard to believe that this is the record for the first place in OPS and the performance of a hitter who recorded an OPS of 0.668 for three seasons in the major leagues until last year.

Rooker was a first-round pick by the Minnesota Twins in 2017, then traded and waiver claimed to Oakland.

In other words, Rooker was acquired by Auckland through a waiver claim. A player who did not have high expectations became the player of the week by hitting home runs every day. 안전놀이터

Rooker recorded a batting average of 0.338 and an OPS of 1.199 as a member of Triple-A in the minor leagues last year with the Kansas City Royals. There is nothing more to show in the minor leagues.

Dan Rooker can be used as a future trade card due to the nature of the Oakland club. Oakland has already sold several star players.
